Your video opens up the world that we didn’t attempt!! Rock Man Reply Anna on June 24, 2011 at 9:39 am Wow, thank you so much for posting this. It was such a privilege to see what it’s really like to see how you climb Everest, really crazy to think that that is the same Earth I’m on right now! It seems like another world…Wow. Amazing! Thanks again 🙂 Reply Kat B. on June 24, 2011 at 10:02 am Fantastic! I see Aboul knew how to keep score in English (8-1, his favor). Hee-Hee. Can’t wait for part II. Reply Jill on June 24, 2011 at 10:08 am Outstanding footage!!! Thanks sooo much for sharing. Now, I don’t have to imagine what Advanced Base Camp or the other places look like. Makes me wish I were a few years younger and could give it a go myself! Reply Barb on June 24, 2011 at 10:25 am What a wonderful video. It’s so nice to see the places you talk about and to see you doing what you love so much. Thank you for sharing and I’m looking forward to Part 2. Reply Mark on June 24, 2011 at 11:39 am The footage is fantastic. Gives one a better view of what it takes to do Everest. The viewes put me in awe. I knew there were a lot of climbers but looks like the I5 at rush hour. Can see how one group could slow another down. My favorite are the ladder c Reply Tina Burke on June 24, 2011 at 12:21 pm Great job on the video Bill. I loved the shower scence–is that weird to say to your father-in-law?

I will never get the opportunity to experience the mountain but have always drawn to it and the mysticism of the far east. I try to read as much as possible about mountaineering. This was a wonderful v Reply Martha on June 24, 2011 at 6:35 pm LOVED IT, LOVED IT!!!!! Can’t even imagine what it must be like to be up there. But you have given me the chance to experience it thru your climb. Thank you so much.

I felt like I was right there. So tantalizingly close! You are a true adventurer. Reply Emmett Davis on June 26, 2011 at 8:57 am BILL: Your trip was really nice one this year. I can tell that you enjoyed the whole experience. Yet, you were so close, but so far away. To be saved for yet another season. I can see why you long to return each year.
